Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
I finally got started on The 13th Hour. Before I share the teaser, I want to mention an interesting specific of the book. There are only 13 chapters in this book (338 pages), but the interesting fact is the book starts at chapter 12, and counts down to chapter 1, finally ending on chapter 13. That feels to me a curious structure for the book, and I'm interested to see how the author pulls off the going-to-the-past stunt in one hour increments to change something that happened, which, as we know from the experience of reading time travel books, is a violation of time traveling, as the past has never been subject to change (except maybe in LOST ::wink::).
"And they were a spot-on match. So you're going to need to be real clear as to how your fingerprints and only your fingerprints are on this gun."
Nick sat there, his mind spinning. He had never seen this gun, let alone touched it.
~ Pg. 17, The 13th Hour by Richard Doetsch.
